The headline and picture says it all. Congrats to Senator Barack Obama on being elected the 44th president of the United States. I’m gonna say what many others have been saying: I never thought I would see a black person elected president in my lifetime. I always thought a white woman or latino male would be elected before a black person would be elected president.
I stayed up all night last night watching the election coverage. I was too excited to get any sleep. And today I continued to watch the post election coverage on CNN and MSNBC.
I stood in line for about an hour and fifteen minutes so I could vote yesterday. I got to the school about 12:45pm and finally got to vote at 2:00pm. The line I was in was outside at first but then eventually it didn’t take long for us to get inside the school. From what I was told the line and wait was much longer earlier yesterday morning.
Anyway I’m glad this whole election process is over. The nastiness gets on my nerves. But you know, 2012 will be here before you know it 😉
